Back to School Lunches for the Kids

It’s time for back to school and if you’re anything like me you’re trying to decide what on Earth to send to school that the kids will eat.  I swear…one day they LOVE peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but the next day they hate them!  Plus, with all of the food allergies nowadays I don’t feel comfortable sending PB&J to school….I don’t want to be the reason a poor child gets rushed to the hospital because they have a peanut allergy!  If this scares you too, make sure you check out Nut Free Lunch Ideas for Back to School …it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!

Melissa is a busy mom trying to survive the preschool years. She loves a good Pinot Grigio and cuddling up on the couch for the latest super hero movie. Her kids enjoy getting in the kitchen and helping make a mess trying new recipes! Even though she's constantly creating new and delicious treats she usually winds up buying grocery store treats when it's time for her to take snacks for school-- at all of the teachers' dismay.
